CCTV caught gang rape suspects.

TWO men caught on CCTV camera during a night out are wanted for questioning by police probing a gang rape.

The men, said to have Liverpool accents, had gone to a Wigan club which the 29-year-old woman victim also visited.

Detectives want to question them, as well as a third man, after the woman complained that she was bundled into a car and taken to Wigan North Western station where she was raped once by each of the men.

The victim and witnesses have told officers the alleged attackers spoke with Liverpool accents.

Detective Sergeant Mick Maher, from British Transport Police, said: ``This was a despicable crime. The victim tells us she was forced into a car and taken to the car park, where she was raped.

``She is very traumatised by what happened. It is vital the men who carried out the attack are caught. ''

The attack took place at approximately 3 am on Sunday, July 4 and police have now released the CCTV images from that night.

They say the men they are looking for were part of a larger group of men on a night out at Maximes nightclub.

Police want to trace the car, a blue four-door Mazda 323, used in the attack.

The three suspects are all white.
